What's next for Occupy?

Adbusters, one of the original groups that helped pull together Occupy Wall Street,  now says Occupy is getting a make-over:
In the U.S. occupiers are experimenting with new techniques of nonviolent protest inspired by the Black Bloc.
How many people equate Black Bloc with non-violence?

Officials said it was bands of Black Bloc protesters that ran wild in Seattle on May Day, forcing the mayor there to invoke expanded police powers to allow confiscation of potential weapons to counter the escalation.

There was also a Black Bloc march in San Francisco's Mission District on April 30th. There's video from the protest posted on YouTube.
